Annunciation

The Rev. Canon Dr. James M. McPherson

ANNUNCIATION

 
The profound logic of God's symphony
requires a new theme come to voice
 
so Mary
totally unsuspecting
is ambushed by an archangel
of polished speech and manner
 
Gabriel's message
a chord
suspended
 
God and creation stilled
in one eternal breathless moment
when all could founder
 
 
until Mary's 'Yes'
 
 
 
when God breathes
the first enigmatic notes
of a supernal melisma
on the creative word
 
Eden hopes for fruit again
and beauty
 
and squadrons of ever-hopeful angels
venture forth
soliciting grace notes
